David Hasselhoff Quits America's Got Talent

David Hasselhoff has been in and out of the hospital for the last year for alcohol poisoning, so it should come as no surprise that he finally quit his job as the host of America's Got Talent.

The Hoff can't barely keep up with his obligations for America's Got Talent, but he's reportedly going to start working on another project.

He said, “I am proud that I was part of making ‘America’s Got Talent’ the number one rated show for the past four summers.

“It’s been a rewarding experience and now I’m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly.”

A statement from the program's broadcasters, NBC, said: “David’s been an integral part of ‘America’s Got Talent’ and we are sad to see him go.”

A replacement hasn't been named yet, but there's a sea of hosts out there that can probably do a better job than him--and they won't show up to work drunk.

And while the Hoff may be staying mum about his new show, his daughter suggested that he's signing up for a new TV show on A+E.
Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley wrote on her twitter blog: “The Hasselhoffs signed the deal with A + E… Get ready for it.”
